be a follower

07 Apr

making use of the social networking tool du jour, Professional Learning PALOOZA has a twitter feed.  if you are unfamiliar with twitter, it was introduced to me a while back as microblogging – where you have a feed that people can “follow” either online, on their phone, etc and you can post a message up to 140 characters.  it has gotten lots of play recently, one prime example was when congressman were twittering, or sending tweets, while president obama was addressing them.  there have been a few examples of athletes twittering from halftime!  anyhow, here is what you do…

go to and sign up for an account and then choose to follow that feed, it couldn’t be easier.

this will also allow us to send messages throughout the day at the event and get instant feed back from participants as to how it’s going.  we can project the feed and let everyone see it throughout the day as well.  i’m hopeful we can make use of these tools.

    Thanks for this new info. I’d probably have to read and play with it just so that I can understand it better, know what it’s capable of doing and learn how I can use it to enrich my professional learning. Thanks!

    thanks for following – i think this could be a great way to get people in tune with what we are doing. the seamless flow of information can really be a great tool for us as we look to advertise.
